we had 52 days the summer before that and then the record is 55 90-degree days set back in 1988 and what was interesting this summer was the number of 100-degree days. we had eight 100-degree days. okay. currently it's toasty. i mean 91 at bethesda, 94 arlington, 93 vienna, low 90s in springfield, 95 in college park and 94 in bowie, but again it's not that humid, great night for baseball. first pitch 92 degrees, last pitch 84, a little breezy, too, winds west, northwest 10 to 15 as we host the cardinals again. every game is important now. get down to brass tacks here. another great night for baseball, nats/cardinals. isolated storms on saturday and then more storms sunday and labor day, all right? so for tonight clear to partly cloudy, breezy, mild, 68 to 74, winds west, northwest 10 to 15,
5:18 pm
got a full moon tonight, a blue moon, two moons in the same month. i'll post a blog on that here shortly. lows tonight upper 60s in the burbs, but downtown and inside the beltway a little toasty, low 70s, maybe 73 in arlington, 72 or so downtown. tomorrow morning plenty of sunshine, breezy, warm, 70s and 80s, winds northwest 10 to 15, that's nice. by afternoon partly cloudy, almost hot, just an isolated shower or thunderstorm, high temps around 90. do not change your tee times for saturday. next three days code green tomorrow 91 and then we'll go code yellow on sunday and also labor day, 86 sunday, 88, much better chance of showers and storms on monday at labor day. next seven days lingering storms will be with us for a while. what's left of isaac kind of meanders around parts of the mid-atlantic and south east. we got storms in tuesday, wednesday, not a washout and into thursday and we go back to the mid-80s with sunshine on

5:20 pm
bliss, texas just ahead of next week's democratic national convention in north carolina. joining us now from the site of the democratic convention in charlotte is the host of face the nation bob schieffer. ien i'm supposed to talk about romney, but make my day. what the heck was clint eastwood doing with that empty chair bit last night? >> i mean have you ever? who is it that keeps saying nothing ever happens at these conventions and here you have this carefully crafted carefully scripted convention and then clint eastwood walks out there and just blows the whole thing. i mean this was the night that the republicans after all the distractions, the hurricane and all of that, finally they thought they had the nation's attention and mitt romney was going to lay out his vision. i got to tell you, derek, all i heard people talking about whether you turned on the radio today, whether it was the morning cable shows, all people were talking about was clint eastwood. we came out of the hotel in tampa this morning getting ready to come to the airport.
5:21 pm
the valets were saying what is it that he was talking about? some of them, their english was not too good and they said i don't -- who was he talking to? and then i get out at the airport, people came up to me. not one person asked me about mitt romney. they all wanted to know about clint eastwood. i get on the airplane, a guys says are you going to have clint eastwood on face the nation sunday? i said well, i guess we'll try. it is just completely overshadowing everything the republicans were trying to do. you almost at one point you kind of had to feel sorry a little bit for mitt romney. i mean his big night and then totally overshadowed by this thing out of the blue and trying to find out who actually decided and put this into the program. it might be a little like trying to find out the formula for making a nuclear weapon. nobody is coming forward with that. >> or for new coke or something. i do have to ask you about mitt romney. he is running for president.
5:22 pm
this was his big night. you're right, you almost want to think it's a conspiracy, clint actually backed obama and showed up to mess it up for romney, but he did give a speech and by all accounts, it was a pretty good speech. >> yeah. i thought it was a fine speech. i probably would have liked to hear him say at least something about our troops overseas. we are fighting a war in afghanistan, no mention of that, but i thought he told us a little more about himself and i think he's got to do that to start connecting with the american people and i thought he laid out his values. he talked about the influence of the church. he didn't go into some tutorial on mormonism, but he told us what his faith had meant to him and how the people in the church supported he and his wife in the very early days. i found it very interesting, but again all kind of washed away. i mean i think the clint
5:23 pm
eastwood thing will go away, but at the very least they really missed an opportunity last night to get folks' attention, but that's not what people i was around were talking about today. that's for sure and when we got here to charlotte, it was pretty much the same situation as it was when we left tampa this morning. >> i think there's one thing we do know and that clint is not getting an invite to the democratic convention. that we know. >> no, no. i'm not sure he'd be invited over to the romney's. >> oh, bob schieffer, can't wait to see you this sunday on face the nation even if you don't have clint on. >> well, we'll have stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and martin o'malley from the state of maryland. >> there you go right from our neighborhood. thank you, bob. coming up the winner of that $337 million powerball jackpot, finally we know who it
5:24 pm
